Man in Cadillac with ‘Light’ beer arrested

TAHLEQUAH — Cherokee County sheriff’s deputies responding to a report of an erratic driver arrested a Miami, Okla., man early Wednesday.

Ralph Gerale Worster, 46, was booked for public intoxication. Residents in Bryant Trailer Park told deputies someone driving a Cadillac was traveling through the area at a high rate of speed without headlights on, and doing “doughnuts.” When deputies arrived, the vehicle was parked in a field, and Worster was allegedly sitting inside with an open can of Natural Light beer in a cupholder. Deputies say he had slurred speech and bloodshot eyes, and admitted he’d been drinking.

Deputies spoke to a woman Tuesday who said someone dumped a large amount of trash on her property. Deputies said several pieces of mail belonging to a Tahlequah resident were found inside the garbage.

Ada Cheater on Tuesday reported a home burglary, and said cash was taken. A man reportedly told Cheater he was the person who committed the burglary and offered to pay restitution, but has yet to do so.

Nick Snyder told sheriff’s officials earlier this month that an intruder broke into his residence while he was camping, and stole a Ruger pistol and several boxes of ammunition.
